Reply To: KLM unhappy with Ryanair gaining Schiphol slots

I’m not sure this will really effect KLM’s transfer traffic since the extra for a through fare flying UK – AMS when combined with a long haul flight is marginal. Add in the extras such as baggage restrictions, through check in and the hazard of a delayed inward flight leading to a missed connection, the saving, if any, can’t be justified.

I think KLM ‘s worry is intra Europe point to point, and frankly they deserve to lose the business seeing the fares they charge for an ever reducing offer. No wonder people are leaving the legacies in droves for the LCC’s!
